The Capital One QuicksilverOne credit limit could be anywhere between $300- $1,000, according to online cardholder reports. But it will depend entirely on the specifics of your credit and your overall financial situation. So, the better your credit is, the higher you can expect your spending limit to be.
Ultimately, if you are unhappy with your credit limit, the issuer periodically reviews accounts for automatic credit limit increases after 6 months of on-time payments. If you'd rather not rely on an automatic increase, you can request one yourself instead.
Capital One QuicksilverOne Cash Rewards Credit Card
Well in my case I've had the card for about 10 years now. My credit limit is only $2,050 and I've been denied the last 4 times I've requested an increase due to not using my existing credit line to their liking. I even called after getting the last rejection letter to which I explained that in order to keep my credit score high I can't have high balances on low credit line cards and if it were higher I would use it more. I was told that if I was denied there wasn't anything they could do, that I could try applying for another one of their cards ?...um no....never again. It just sucks that this is one of my longest-standing cards so I have to keep it around.
